‘Fallout 5’ And ‘The Elder Scrolls 6’: Why Bethesda Takes Inexplicable Long Time To Release Its Ace Titles [VIDEO]

Bethesda is one of the finest developers in the industry. Among the studio’s games include “Fallout” and “The Elder Scrolls” franchises. Fans and gamers most likely look forward to hear new games from the company which most likely are the “Fallout 5” and “The Elder Scrolls 5”. However, it apparently leaves the fans wonder as to when will these games come into reality.

There has been a great spate of AAA games in the past few years. Games get better looking and get even more and more complex. With this, time goes by and the requirements needed to develop such titles grow simultaneously.

Bethesda undergoes the same situation. They are even guilty of taking a great amount of years to introduce a new title wherein their development cycle is between four to 5 years, in average.

Apparently, Bethesda can’t be blamed for such long time of development. This is due to the future titles,’ “The Elder Scrolls 6” and “Fallout 5”, requirement of robust engines. Note that it takes as long as it does because of the engine involved — whether they develop a brand new engine or fine tuning the same engine for their specific game or development pipeline.

Games like “Metal Gear Solid V” took a long time to be developed because its development was associated with the FOX engine development. Also, the development of “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” took as long as it did since Nintendo developed a full physics engine from scratch. Though Bethesda has been using the same engine over and over again, then why do they still take a long time to develop and release new games?

Hence, Bethesda takes a long time to develop new titles because they spend so much time on creating the games’ settings. Whether it is creating fully realized fantasy worlds from scratch or recreating real world settings in a post-apocalyptic scenario, Bethesda’s worlds all feel believable and live. It is something that has to take time because it takes probably a lot of time of research and thinking, according to GamingBolt.

Most importantly, this may not be the only reason for Bethesda’s long development cycles but note that their games are always of quality coupled with insane attention to detail. These are what makes “Fallout 5” and “Elder Scrolls 6” worth the wait.
